The EEOC’s Coronavirus Guidance Amid Uncertain Times

On March 19, 2020 by Schnader in Client Alerts

Please visit our COVID-19 Resource Center here for additional guidance.

Brian M. Wallen and Michael J. Wietrzychowski have published a new client alert, “The EEOC’s Coronavirus Guidance Amid Uncertain Times.” It reads in part:

On March 16, 2020, the EEOC issued guidance on how employers can respond to the COVID-19 outbreak in a manner consistent with the Americans with Disabilities Act. This guidance includes how to deal with applicants or employees who have symptoms of COVID-19 or may be returning to work after recovering from COVID-19. Perhaps because the EEOC has directed its own employees to telecommute for the foreseeable future after a worker tested positive for COVID-19, this guidance represents a departure from EEOC guidance promulgated in response to past novel public health issues.
